    Five-dimensional black hole could 'break' general relativity

    "If naked singularities exist, general relativity breaks down," said co-author Saran Tunyasuvunakool, also a PhD student from DAMTP. "And if general relativity breaks down, it would throw everything upside down, because it would no longer have any predictive power -- it could no longer be considered as a standalone theory to explain the universe."

    Oh that just asinine media buzz crap. Clueless reporters alway mischaracterize science.

    Naked singularities are just an extreme case of general relativity that even Einstein predicted but did not quantify mathematically. Einstein was a great scientist but he was not all knowing. In the future will be yet another discovery of science that will unify...just like Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity is just a more accurate prediction of Newton's Laws of Motion. Science is always evolving into more inclusive theories.
